NEIGHBORHOOD: NOE VALLEY

With its popular 24th Street shopping district, easy commute to the South Bay via I-280, and beautiful views, Noe Valley has become one of San Francisco’s most desired neighborhoods. 

Living in Noe Valley is an easy commute south, and many Silicon Valley companies have employee shuttles that stop in the neighborhood. The J-Church metro train and the 24 Divisadero and 48 Quintara buses are among the public transit options available in Noe Valley. Numerous shops and restaurants line 24th Street, including a Whole Foods Market, the ever-popular Firefly restaurant, the Noe Valley Bakery, and Phoenix Books. Lovejoy’s Tea Room, a quaint British tea room that remains a favorite for bridal showers, sits around the corner on Church Street. A second, smaller shopping strip on Church near 29th Street features a Regent Thai restaurant, and Toast Eatery diner, which also boasts a 24th Street location. Homes in the Liberty Hill area on the neighborhood’s north end — bounded by Liberty, Hill, Church, and Castro streets – offer stunning views and proximity to Mission Dolores Park. A lavish Christmas display on 21st Street attracts throngs of spectators each December to Liberty Hill. 

In addition, Noe Valley enjoys some of San Francisco’s sunniest weather. Nearby Dolores Park with its spectacular views, dog run, and free movie nights, remains one of the most popular hangout spots in San Francisco. The city also recently remodeled the park’s playground as part of a large-scale renovation project. While Noe Valley is known for its large number of young families, it remains appealing to a diverse crowd including professionals and couples without children.

  • Built by Harold G. Stoner in 1940, in the Streamline Moderne style -- an offshoot of the Art Deco style 
  • Surrounded by affluent neighborhoods such as St. Francis Wood, Merced Manor, West Portal, Balboa Terrace, Ingleside Terrace, and Forest Hill
  • Numbers of shops, services, eateries, parks/playgrounds, and schools on Ocean Avenue and surrounding areas in close proximity
  • Within a 1.5-mile radius: Stonestown Galleria, Trader Joe's, Olive Garden, Macy's Nordstrom, YMCA, SAn Francisco State University, Citibank, Stern Grove

  • Quick and convenient commute options also include quick access to I-280, which links with points south and east, as well as Highway 1 (19th Avenue), less than two blocks away
  • Plenty of off-site parking with parking lot across the street

NEIGHBORHOOD: LAKESIDE

Lakeside is a long, narrow neighborhood in southwest San Francisco, located between the Stonestown and Ingleside Terrace neighborhoods.  Despite its name, Lakeside is not next to the nearby Lake Merced, but it is very close to San Francisco State University and the Stonestown Galleria.  Bordered by Junipero Serra Boulevard and 19th Avenue, two of the busiest streets in San Francisco, Lakeside is a well-kept and surprisingly tranquil haven in the midst of a bustling city. 

Despite its seemingly out-of-the-way location in the outlying reaches of San Francisco, Lakeside is actually well situated.  In addition to a number of shops, services, and eateries at the northern end of the neighborhood, the Stonestown Galleria, which is literally across the street to the west, offers many conveniences and amenities (including Trader Joe’s and Macys).  Public transportation, which includes bus service and light rail, is readily available making the commute quick and convenient.  I-280 which links with points south and east is a few blocks away, and Highway 1 (19th Avenue), heading north toward Marin is just outside the door.

Developed by Stoneson Development Company in the years between 1936 and 1950, Lakeside was a pricey subdivision for its time, offering lovely homes and embracing the modern notion of putting utility lines underground.  Although most of the homes are relatively modest by today’s standards they are attractive and well maintained.  Several homes are a little more luxurious – including the “mansions” that the Stoneson brothers built for themselves.  Many homes in Lakeside still sport the white picket fences that were considered a signature for the neighborhood in its early years, offering the neighborhood an old-fashioned charm.
